  • It technically doesn't count as a JV loss, but the Orioles' sophomores tasted defeat for the first time this season.
    Andale had two interceptions, a kickoff-return touchdown and several big running plays on way to a 52-27 victory at Hillier Stadium Monday night.
    Augusta had its only lead of the game during the first quarter when Raef Hilt capped a long drive with a one-yard touchdown run for a 7-0 Oriole lead.
    Andale returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown, then converted a 2-point conversion for an 8-7 lead.
    The Indians added to that lead after picking off a pass and scoring on a short drive. They converted another 2-point conversion for a 16-7 lead. Andale was 5-for-6 on 2-point tries.
    Jaden Shryock capped a scoring drive with a six-yard quarterback rollout for the Orioles. Hilt scored the 2-pointer to pull them within one point.
    Andale later scored on a 52-yard run to go back up by two scores. It then recovered a squib kick that led to another touchdown run and a 32-15 lead.
    Hilt returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown to close the gap to 32-21 at halftime.
    The Orioles hurt themselves several times in the second half with penalties, including one that wiped out a 48-yard TD run. Andale scored two more touchdowns before the Orioles cracked the scoreboard again to put the game out of reach.
    Hilt scored his third touchdown of the day during the fourth quarter. Andale closed the scoring with a pick-six on the game's final play.
